In the application process, a financing plan is, in a way, the feasibility study of the project description. The workshop provides a basic knowledge of how to prepare a financing plan and shows how it can reflect the essence of your application. How do you envision your project in practice? Is the project realistic or not? What is the relationship between artistic expenses and overhead and what does »Eigenanteil« mean?
In order for the grant money to be used in full after approval, the grant projects must be handled correctly in terms of content and finances. The basis for this is the »Kostenfinanzierungsplan«, whose function changes slightly with the grant being approved. In the second part, the workshop teaches how to correctly retrieve and correctly account for grant funds and how to properly document and prepare proofs of use.
The correct communication with the funding agencies will also be discussed, as this is often the best protection against reclaims and unnecessary work steps.
The online workshop aims to impart basic knowledge and works with input units, group discussions, small group tasks and collegial exchange.

In this year’s online workshop series ONpaper, which we are again organizing together with the initiative neue musik / field notes experts will teach basic skills for working in the independent scene.
Under the heading »Project Funding« we will get you ready for grant applications in autumn with introductions to the funding landscapes of Berlin and Cologne, application writing, or accounting.
In a second block of workshops, topics such as time management, ensemble management, as well as insights into the music business, will direct our attention to the world around the music stands. Even if terms such as »business« and »time management« can seem daunting at first, the modules will be designed to be vivd and interactive so that both experienced musicians and newcomers can feel at ease.
